What is Network Address Translation - NAT

An internet standard that increases security by enabling a Local Area Network (LAN) to use one set of Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for internal traffic and a second set for external traffic. A NAT box located where the LAN meets the Internet makes all necessary IP address translations. This feature is often built into routers.
